Keloid & Hypertrophic Scar Injection
Keloid Scars are elevated fibrous scars that extend beyond the borders of the original wound, do not regress, and usually recur after excision. Hypertrophic Scars are similar, but are confined to the wound borders and usually regress over time. Scar hypertrophy usually appears within a month of injury, whereas keloids may take three months or even years to develop. The treatments for keloids and hypertrophic scars are similar using corticosteroids. Intra-lesional Steroids are safe and usually given once every four weeks, it helps flatten keloid and hypertrophic scars.
